| RAISE FUNDS
We encourage anyone who shares our passion for youth development to help us raise funds by finding creative ways of bringing awareness to our programmes. Examples include participating in a marathon, sharing on social media, hosting a fundraising drive at work, and many more. Visit our Make a Soul Smile page to make a campaign request or request support. Alternatively, e-mail us with details of the assistance you need.
Here are a few ideas of fundraising activities and you can partner with us to raise funds for youth projects:
A 5-10km marathon or park run is a great way to generate publicity to a particular cause and raise funds. We have a wellness club with a growing membership that can participate.
Challenge your friends, family and colleagues to support a project you are interested in. This is a good way to raise funds quickly and can be done with ease and efficiency.
Social Media Challenge
Make a video or image bringing attention to a particular issue, then share it across your social platforms and ask you followers to share and participate.
Make a commitment to participate in a day of goodwill activity, where you volunteer or do something good for those in need. South Africa observes the Day of Goodwill on 26 December.
If you have a particular strength in teaching or a subject such as Maths or Sciencee, consider volunteering as a tutor at a nearby school or online.
Host a fundraiser
If you own a business or can offer a space like a coffee shop, etc. you can host a fundraiser which your patrons can be encouraged to participate in.
Online Giving Days
Similar to Black Friday, giving days such as Giving Tuesday are created to promote the idea of giving to causes close to your heart and raising awareness about them.
Donate old items
You can also donate old items like clothes, computer devices, books, etc., which are still in a good or working condition to support those who need them most.
Visit the Augmented Education page to learn more about how we work with school governing bodies to improve the school and support the school’s needs. We believe the most sustainable way to support schools is to empower the people charged with managing the schools.

Working on Women
This initiative aims to empower women through workshop interventions where young women participate in skills training, and preparation for the workplace. This initiative is designed not only for unemployed young women, but those in employment as well. Everyday we ask each other how to achieve gender parity in the workplace, as well as improve skills and access to economic opportunities for women. While we collectively work on developing reforms and policies that can radically shift these statistics politically and in corporate entities, we’re also ensuring we work on the ground to empower young women with the skills and confidence-building interventions that will allow them to exploit these opportunities.
You can help us grow this campaign’s impact and reach, by participating in the online platform which is shared via our social media platforms or workshop events, held from time to time. There are also wonderful prizes to be won, so check out our social media pages and follow us to stay tuned. Go to Working on Women page for more.
